While on tour with Destroyer in the fall of 2016, I made a quick detour to Chicago for a solo performance at The Whistler. They recorded the performance and currently feature a few tracks on their “Weekly Free” column. Have a listen to “Dark Wings” here whistlerchicago.com.
And as a bonus! Check out the Doom & Gloom from the Tomb website for a free download of the entire concert.

Zachary Cale is a NYC based songwriter/musician originally hailing from the small town of Enon, Louisiana. His music ranges from lyrically driven balladry over American Primitive inspired guitar playing to Cosmic Country music and cerebral Folk Rock.
For the past decade Cale has been releasing records under his own name via a number of labels including his own imprint All Hands Electric. His latest album Duskland was released in 2015 on No Quarter to critical acclaim.
On stage Cale performs both solo and with an full electric band. In concert his melodically complex guitar playing has been compared to Neil Young and Bert Jansch with nods to pre-war Piedmont and Ragtime players such as Blind Willie McTell and Mississippi John Hurt. In a full band setting Cale adopts a style and delivery closer to country-tinged rock songwriters such as Alex Chilton, Ray Davies, and Tom Petty
He has played hundreds of shows traversing both the US and EU sharing stages with Sharon Van Etten, Destroyer, Robyn Hitchcock, Crystal Stilts, Neko Case, Six Organs of Admittance, Deer Tick, Ryley Walker, Justin Townes Earle, Jessica Pratt, The Black Swans, War on Drugs, Steve Gunn, Villagers, Hiss Golden Messenger, Foxygen, Wooden Wand, Michael Chapman, William Tyler, Chris Forsyth, Angel Olsen, Dan Melchior, and many others.
